So I have no idea what's wrong with my guitar (Ibanez RG2EX; made in Indonesia... surprise surprise with all these problems eh?)
Anyways, throughout the past month, the sound from my guitar would sometimes short. By short, I mean the sound your amp makes when a live instrument cable is touching your finger, or not fully inserted into your guitar jack. That garbling sound...
I figured that it was just a loose wire, so I unscrew the output jack (it's the plate ones, not the barrels) and solder the wires together. I swear, I didn't touch anything but the little fray of wires sticking out. After my little surgery, I plug my amp into my guitar and.....
No sound whatsoever.
So what I'm wondering is if it is an output jack problem or another electronic problem in the guitar? If it is an output jack problem, what would the appropriate part number be to replace it? I took it into Guitar Center, and being how Guitar Center is, they said, "We can't identify the problem unless we fully disassemble the guitar. That will be a $75 charge."
Any advice is greatly appreciated
